Thread Name: Strengthening your nails for pickin' - New method
Subject: RE: Strengthening your nails for pickin' - New met
I sort of remember reading a piece by Pete Seeger(it may be found in his INCOMPEAT FOLKSINGER)talking about hitting his finger with a hammer, the regrown nail being stronger....etc. Too damn painful if you ask me. I frail the banjo withour any fingernails. In fact if my nails start to get too long, my frailing doesn't sound as good.
